of democracy in that god-forsaken region? iraq! george bush's iraq. that's how you install a democracy in the middle-east, with the help of the united states military. it is not with a bunch of men running around, gang raping american journalists and shooting guns in the air. the idea that this was going to lead to anything good was preposterous. >> a big impact on the campaign -- last question. >> i -- i-- >>> booing god and booing jerusalem -- >> i think it ought to. but i think the economy is going to remain the predominant issue. but i don't know. this could get worse and worse. the more you back down to savage, the more they are going to attack. >> sean: we are living through at this time rise of radical islamists. >> you know what we are -- we are living off the good effect of the war in iraq. the good effect of the bush years. but you can only live off that so long. >> sean: i think this president is a wimp. i think this president doesn't have the courage to stand up to these terrorists. either that or he can't identify it for what it is -- >> he is utterly naive, you can say th
recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was an unexpected thing to fi. historically libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda, and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them, do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there's a sort of umbrella group, according to the libyan -- former libyan jihadist, supporters of sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who were taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, being able to do some attacks on western
diplomacy is to emphasize respect for islam in the wake of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in may of 2008, president bush went beyond just offering support. after an american soldier used a koran for target practice, president bush actually apologized to iraqi prime minister nouri al maliki. >> he apologized for that in the sense the that he said, we take it very seriously, we were concerned about their reaction, we wanted them to know that the president knew that this was wrong and that the commanders in the field had publicly reprimanded the soldier and removed him from iraq. >> this was always one of the most admirable dimensions of the bush administration. and a real achievement. after 9/11, it was entirely possible that the country could have lapsed into anti-muslim sentiment. the bush administration legitimately fought to keep that from happening, and they largely succeeded. let's turn to congressman keith ellison, who was also the first muslim member of congress. congressman, good to have you here tonight. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> the bush administration understood th
into another iraq. >> and they've said that that explicitly, about turning libya into another iraq. how did -- so many people are deciding, could you tell me more about those who are very anti nus their sentiment. >> these people did say they do not agree with this attack. they really felt ashamed by what happened, saying that diplomats here, foreigners here should be protected, but at the same time, they said they reject the presence of any foreign troops or any sort of outside military intervention in libya. they said we've also heard that last year during the revolution, there was unity in the stands of libyans who were fighting the regime of moammar gadhafi. they welcomed the support of nato air strikes, but said they did not want to see any boots on the ground. so at this point, this could be a real controversial issue here in libya. we have to wait and hear, see what the libyan government officials say about this. they have said they're unable to deal with groups. >> and that, nick kristof, let me bring you in here. some people had told her tonight, regular libyans, they don't want am

the compound's main gate. protests have also occurred in other countries including egypt, iraq, iran, tunisia, and bangladesh as well as the gaza strip. in cairo, at least 13 demonstrators were injured today outside the u.s. embassy. police reportedly used tear gas to disperse the protesters after they threw stones and molotov cocktails. the protests follow tuesday night's storming of the was consulate in the libyan city of benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three staffers dead. on wednesday, president obama vowed to bring to justice those responsible for the killings, which he said would not repeat ties between u.s. and libya. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. the world must stand at a to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. already, many libyans have joined us in doing so. this attack will not break the bonds between u.s. and libya. >> the obama administration has dispatched an elite group of marines to the libyan capital of tripoli and six u

, u.s. diplomatic posts are on alert this hour. we have witnessed protests in yemen, iraq, egypt, tunisia, bangladesh and, of course, the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. that attack first presumed to be linked somehow to a controversial film made by a private citizen in america that depicts the prophet muhammad in a negative light, but now authorities are investigating, and there are reports that this was a preplanned terrorist attack that was intended all along to coincide with september 11th. and this is just some of the disturbing video that's come into the fox newsroom from teams around the globe. these scenes are from egypt earlier today. this is where the protest movement first began, again, query what the protest is about. we were told in egypt it did have to do with the film, but it clearly has gone way beyond that in many cities. angry mobs clashing with police for a third straight day, setting fires in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assau
-american demonstrations also broke out in iraq. >> there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton appealed for calm and expressed to the muslim world that the film in question does not represent the s. government. >> this video is disgusting and reprehensible. >> reporter: the state department is bracing for even bigger protests following friday prayers in the middle east. thursday president obama said he'd ordered all the necessary steps to protect americans abroad. tuesday night violence at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya left four americans dead including ambassador chris stevens. libyan authorities reported that they have made some arrests. >> i saw those press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them, but obviously it would be a good thing if we're starting to move forward on the justice piece. >> reporter: the fbi open an investigation as officials try to sort out whether this was a protest that got out of hand or an organized terrorist attack. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the state d
that are stationed in our embassies, but we don't plant an army in every country around our embassy. in iraq we have because there is a war zone. there still is a small army associated with the embassy. i think there are 17,000 people there in the green zone in iraq. i think that in a war zone, it's a little bit different. i don't want to second-guess the protection, but i do want to second-guess that our response should be very clear to libya and very clear to egypt that if we're going to have an embassy in the country, we need to be saved, and if we're going to spend money, we need to protect our embassy. lou: you believe that governor romney was too quick and too severe in his criticism of the obama administration as he turned a critical eye to the way in which the state department was apologizing to radical islam is at the very moment that they had stormed our embassy in cairo and were within very short order to be killing four americans, including the ambassador of libya? >> my response was very similar to governor romney's. that was to feel like it's not appropriate when the ambassador has bee
on behalf of oppressed muslims. kuwait, kosovo, bosnia, iraq, afghanistan, elsewhere. so to imply that we somehow mistreated muslims which was the premise of the speech and how the iraq war had inflamed the arab world against us. there was no storming of the u.s. embassy in cairo in those days. what we're seeing now is al-qaeda stand developing in libya. meltdown of our relations with egypt. you have riots in yemen. tax on the embassy in tunisia. this entire premise that we want to be loved and respected, we'll apologize is now yielded all of these results and these are the fruits of apology and retreat. lack of confidence in our own principles. >> bret: next up, america diplomats under siege in middle east and how is the media covering all of this? [ male announcer ] after years of celebrations, marie callender's gives you a way to make any day a special occasion. new mini cream pies for one. real whip cream and a cookie-crumb crust. marie callender's. it's time to savor. >>> there is a general feeling out there that the president, i think among the press corps, generally, not everybody
. and it is beyond cairo tonight. anti-u.s. demonstrators clashed in front of u.s. embassies, in israel, sudan, iraq, iran and among muslims in kashmir. there's a call in iran for nationwide rallies tomorrow. it appears to be a backlash at least in part from a low budget anti-islamic film which was made in the united states, first posted on youtube in july and recently publicized in the middle east. here's what we're also learning tonight. federal officials say the filmmaker's name is nakoul nakoula basseley nakoula. that name is very important and much more and why it matters so much later. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statement denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they have quickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and
to exacerbate those concerns, this is a great time to do that to play up the fears. we've seen in iraq they respond to the video and threaten to target u.s. attorneys. >> all right, thank you for helping us make sense of this. >>> the white house handling of all of this could make-or-break the re-election hopes. ed rendell joins the conversation as "the cycle" rolls on for thursday, september 13th. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affect seniors today and in the future? find out with the aarp voters' guide at earnedasay.org to compete on the global stage. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that'
peld qaddafi and put the current regime in power makes libya his iraq. just as bush was held responsible for stuff in iraq. is he going to be held responsible for stuff in libya. his arab spring initiative that permitted the muslim brotherhood to thrive now looks very suspect and it looks like a failure. and when you combine that with his refusing to see netanyahu and hillary refusing to draw a red line over which iran can't step without us retaliating, that all together really raises questions about his leadership. >> bill: okay, let's explain the netanyahu thing. the israeli prime minister is coming here next week, all right, for the u.n. he wanted to meet with president obama about the iranian nuclear situation. the president said he is he too busy campaigning, what have you. netanyahu then went public and said hey, we don't believe the u.s.a. has our back on iran. we think they are evading us. now, that combined with chaos in egypt, combined with murder in libya, that's a pretty tough, 1, 2, 3 punch. >> yeah. >> however, should mitt romney get involved, or should he step
bush, in these weeks and months when she was planning action against iraq, he was also talking about how great a religion islam is. he was talking about how we as americans look after muslim ameri americans, we protect them from hatred and tell them vile things about. -- -- also respect islam as an apologize. that's what the -- after 911. you. >> this is best evidence for why the blustering comments of a desperate politician are actually not in the best interests of this nation when it comes to matters overseas. >> that's obviously true. as richard said, george w. bush understood and mitt romney makes george w. bush look like some sort of giant of states manship and blodiplomacy, which is not easy thing to do. the administration response should have been some sort of blustery defense of this vile video produced specifically to inflame the sentiments of the muslim world. and just imagine what would have happened had that been an initial reaction by the u.s. administration saying, yeah, boy, we think this is great. you wouldn't see what you're seeing today, you would see something much
it and replaced it with a flag with the muslim declaration. others broke windows and set fires to cars. in iraq, several hundred shiite muslim hard-liners protests in baghdad. and there is a new round of threatened anti-american attacks. in pakistan the leader called on the muslim world to cut off diplomatic relations with the united states and boy caught all american products. in libya, the security officials searched cars in benghazi. united states and libyan officials are trying to figure out whether this is part of the protests again the antius lame -- antiislam most or part of lend. nothing can be confirmed. hillary clinton condemned the violence and the movie. >> to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. as i said yesterday, there is no justification, non-at all, -- nothing at all to respond to the violence. >>shepard: the president ordered the took "do whatever necessary," to protect americans. jonathan hunt is here with the news this afternoon. the extremist use the
dying in iraq and afghanistan, as it was barack obama's right. but i don't remember people criticizing either john kerry or barack obama for criticizing the bush and/or mccain foreign policy. in fact, in july 2008, nine servicemen were killed in one day in afghanistan. on that very day, barack obama weighed in to criticize george bush and john mccain's foreign policy. and i don't remember any of this media double standard saying to senator obama, isn't it inappropriate for you to criticize the foreign policy of the person you're running against? it's a double standard, anderson. >> is it the same thing, though? that's an ongoing war where, you know, if you say you can't comment on anything about an ongoing war that goes on for years at a time and you can make any statements. this is a thing where hours matter and we don't know if people are alive or dead. we don't know if the attack is going on. >> anderson, this has been a 20-year war against muslim terrorists who attack our country. they struck four times in the clinton administration, once in the bush administration and now once in
for the u.s.-led government in iraq under president bush. now a romney adviser who thinks obama's middle east policy is a disaster. now how that's for irony? a man who defended the war in iraq is slamming president obama on foreign policy. and here comes the big one. donald rumsfeld, the man who helped leaders into two disastrous wars is weighing in. >> you don't see these kinds of things happening unless the people engaging in them are pretty darn sure that there's no penalty for it. >> as bill clinton would say, this takes brass. there were 12 -- 12 attacks on u.s. diplomatic fa till teas under george bush. eight while rumsfeld was serving. how is that for hypocrisy? and what's worst, these are the folks that romney is aligning himself with. they are the people coming to his defense and guiding his policies. do we really want to go back to shoot and aim later? joining me now is michael tomaski, special kor spoon dend for newsweek and the daily beast. he's writing today about mitt romney's total neocon melt down. thanks for coming on the show tonight. >> my pleasure, al. >> you talk ext
